Through the years, Amy (Bradley) Tarver has been able to be apart of live theatre on stage and off. She started out volunteering locally at Sam Bass Community Theater before heading to New York City to study at The New York Conservatory For Dramatic Arts, the School for Film and Television. While in NYC, Amy worked on stage with the Afrikan Woman’s Repertory Theater, behind the scenes with Wide Eyed Productions and reviewed Off Broadway shows for nytheatre.com. Her passion and commitment helped bring new works to life from the ground up working with fresh ideas and fresh playwrights. She eventually went on to direct a collection of David Ive’s shows, A Mystery at Twicknam Vicarage and Babel in Arms, at the 14th Street Theater with the support of her colleagues at Wide Eye Theater Productions. After completing her acting education, Amy returned to Austin TX and continues her passion for the arts behind the scenes. As an active member of The Austin's Critics Table, Amy has reviewed live theatre for almost a decade. She strives to review productions as a whole - reviewing all the moving parts that make a show a masterpiece of living art.
